Nutter Nabs Medalist Honors at Stonebridge Qualifier

June 5th, 2019

Goffstown, NH – After a strong three-under par, 69, at Stonebridge Country Club Jake Nutter (Intervale CC) earns his spot in the field at the 116th New Hampshire Amateur Championship presented by Audi Nashua.  Nutter’s under-par round was three strokes better than the next competitor in the field and good enough to be in the medalist position.
 
Starting out the round with three consecutive birdies, it was clear Nutter was going to have a good round.  He made the turn at two under after making bogey on the challenging 8th hole at Stonebridge CC.  He had one bogey on the back nine but followed that up with two birdies to be one under on the back and finishing up his round at three under par.  His under-par round was the only under-par round of the day.
 
Andrew Purse of Bald Peak Colony Club had a solid round of even-par, 72.  Though it was up and down most of the way as he made five birdies and five bogeys, he finished with the second-best score of the qualifying round.  Bob Kearney (The Shattuck GC) and Troy Demers (Pembroke Pines CC) also had strong showings as they each shot two over par, 74 to advance to the championship proper.
 
Other notable golfers moving on to Portsmouth CC are junior golfers Brian Adams (Breakfast Hill GC) and Noah Leclair (Nashua CC).  Adams fired 77 and Leclair shot 80 to advance.  The back nine seemed to be the trickier side of the golf course for these two, but they held on to return scores good enough to compete against the top amateurs in the state.
 
Those shooting 85 or better at Stonebridge CC will be moving on to the New Hampshire Amateur Championship presented by Audi Nashua which is being held at Portsmouth CC  next month.
